Button to Open Current Directory in Windows Explorer

I created a very simple button to open the current working directory in Windows Explorer. I thought others may find this useful so I though I'd share it here. Thanks!

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<button backcol="none" display="both" hotkey="ctrl+shift+E" label_pos="right" textcol="none">
	<label>Open in Explorer</label>
	<tip>Open current working directory in Windows Explorer.</tip>
	<icon1>/windows/explorer.exe,0</icon1>
	<function type="normal">
		<instruction>explorer.exe &quot;{sourcepath}&quot;</instruction>
	</function>
</button>

The button simply runs the command explorer.exe "{sourcepath}". I set the shortcut to Ctrl+Shift+E.
I also used the main Explorer icon from the explorer.exe executable in %windir%. This has been tested on Windows 11 and since the icon is different on 10 that may have to be adjusted for Win 10. I have found this useful when working on things that may behave differently in Windows Explorer than DOpus due to compatibility reasons. I hope someone finds this useful. Thanks!

That's already in the default toolbars, near the bottom of the Tools menu.

Oh good to know! Thanks. I've been using DOpus since November and I swear I learn new things every day.
